Today 18th may we celebrate the International Museum Day 2017

Today we celebrate the International Museum Day. The International Council of Museums (ICOM), created this day forty years ago to make awareness of the importance of museums for social development.

The theme for this IMD 2017 is “Museums and Contested Histories: Saying the unspeakable in museums”. It focuses the role of those museums that promote peace among the human race, accepting a painful past and creating the first step to find a common future.

ICOM assures that in the last few years, near 30.000 museums organised a large number of activities in more than 120 countries.

Proasur would like to congratulate all the museums we have created over 25 years and are part of our history. A very big hug to you all!
